Drummer and composer Klaus Schulze was a member of an early lineup, but the most stable version of the group during their influential mid-1970s period was as a keyboard trio with Froese, Christopher Franke, and Peter Baumann. Klaus Schulze (born August 4, 1947) is a German Electronic music Composer and musician. Christopher Franke (born April 6, 1953 in Berlin) is a musician and composer Peter Baumann (born January 29, 1953 in Berlin) formed the core line-up of the German electronic group Tangerine Dream with Edgar Early in the 1980s, Johannes Schmoelling replaced Baumann, and this lineup, too, was stable and extremely productive. Johannes Schmoelling (born November 9, 1950 in Lohne, Germany) Johannes was a member of the prolific electronic music group Tangerine Dream
Tangerine Dream's early "Pink Years" albums had a pivotal role in the development of Krautrock. Krautrock is a generic name for the Experimental music scene that appeared in Germany in the late 1960s and gained popularity throughout the 1970s especially in Britain Their "Virgin Years" and later albums became a defining influence in New Age music, although the band themselves dislike the term. New Age music is peaceful Music of various styles which is intended to create inspiration relaxation and positive feelings often used by listeners for Yoga,
Although the group has released numerous studio and live recordings, a substantial number of their fans were introduced to Tangerine Dream by their film soundtracks, which numbers over sixty and includes Sorcerer, Thief, The Keep, Risky Business, Firestarter, Legend, Near Dark, and Miracle Mile. Sorcerer is a 1977 Film, produced and directed by William Friedkin, starring Roy Scheider, Bruno Cremer, Francisco Thief is a 1981 noir crime Drama written and directed by Michael Mann, based on the novel The Home Invaders by "Frank Hohimer" The Keep is a 1983 Horror film directed by Michael Mann and starring Scott Glenn, Gabriel Byrne, Jürgen Prochnow Risky Business is a 1983 Comedy film written by Paul Brickman in his directorial debut Firestarter is a 1984 Science fiction thriller film based on the novel of the same name by Stephen King.

In the late 60s and early 70s, several short-lived incarnations of Tangerine Dream were formed by Froese teaming up with various musicians from West Berlin's underground scene. A few of these collaborators included Steve Jolliffe, Klaus Schulze and Conrad Schnitzler. Steve Jolliffe (born April 28, 1949) is an English musician Jolliffe was a member of the Blues-rock band Steamhammer between Klaus Schulze (born August 4, 1947) is a German Electronic music Composer and musician. Conrad Schnitzler (b Düsseldorf, 1937 is a prolific German experimental Musician.
The most notable of Froese's collaborations ended up being his partnership with Christopher Franke. Christopher Franke (born April 6, 1953 in Berlin) is a musician and composer Franke joined Tangerine Dream in 1970 from the group Agitation Free to replace Schulze as the drummer, and eventually (together with Peter Baumann, whose sequencer work is often mislabelled as 'all' Franke's work) became Tangerine Dream's sequencer guru and was responsible for some of the pulsing rhythmic synthesizer lines that came to define the band's music. Agitation Free was a German avant-garde rock band The band was formed in 1967 with Michael "Fame" Günther (bass Lutz " Lüül " Ulbrich Peter Baumann (born January 29, 1953 in Berlin) formed the core line-up of the German electronic group Tangerine Dream with Edgar Franke left Tangerine Dream over creative differences with Froese nearly two decades later in 1987.
Other long-term members of the group included Peter Baumann (1971-1977), who later went on to found the New Age label Private Music, to which the band was signed from 1988 to 1991; Johannes Schmoelling (1980-1985); Paul Haslinger (1986-1990); and, most recently (1990 onwards), Froese's son Jerome. Peter Baumann (born January 29, 1953 in Berlin) formed the core line-up of the German electronic group Tangerine Dream with Edgar Private Music is an American Record company founded in 1984 by experimental musician Peter Baumann, as a home for instrumental music
A number of other members were also part of Tangerine Dream for shorter periods of time. In contrast to session musicians, they also contributed to some compositions of the band during their stay. The five most notable such members are Steve Schroyder (organist, 1971-72), Michael Hoenig (who replaced Baumann for a 1975 Australian tour and a London concert, included on Bootleg Box Set Vol. Star Sounds Orchestra are Steve Schroyder and Jens Zygar, a Psychedelic trance project from Germany.

As of 2007 Tangerine Dream comprises Edgar Froese, with the collaboration of Thorsten Quaeschning, who helped in the composition of Jeanne D'Arc (album) (2005) and Madcap's Flaming Duty (2007) with Chris Hausl on vocals. Madcap's Flaming Duty is a 2007 album by Tangerine Dream. Along with Cyclone it is one of the few Tangerine Dream releases to feature vocals For concerts and recordings they are joined mainly by Iris Camaa and Linda Spa.
Edgar Froese arrived in West Berlin in the mid-1960s to study art. West Berlin was the name given to the western part of Berlin between 1949 and 1990 He worked as a sculptor and studied under Salvador Dalí, among others. Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech 1st Marquis of Púbol (May 11 1904 &ndash January 23 1989 was a Spanish Catalan Surrealist His first band, the R&B-styled The Ones, was gradually dismantled after releasing only one single, and Froese turned to experimentation, playing minor gigs with a variety of musicians. Most of these gigs were in the famous Zodiak Free Arts Lab, although Froese's band was also invited to play for his former teacher Dalí. The Zodiak Free Arts Lab, sometimes known as the "Zodiak Club" or "Zodiac Club" was a short-lived but highly influential experimental live music venue founded in the Music was mixed with literature, painting, early forms of multimedia, and more. Literature is the Art of written works Literally translated the word means "acquaintance with letters" (from Latin littera letter Painting (pān'tīng in Art, is the practice of applying Color to a Surface (support base such as e Multimedia is media and content that utilizes a combination of different content forms. Only the most outlandish ideas attracted any attention, and Froese summed up this attitude with the phrase: "In the absurd often lies what is artistically possible". As members of the group came and went, the direction of the music continued to be inspired by the Surrealists, and the group came to be called by the surreal-sounding name of Tangerine Dream (prior to this the group had sometimes gone under the title of The Tangerines Psychedlic Light Dreams or the Tangerine Dream band). Surrealism is a cultural movement that began in the early-1920s and is best known for the visual artworks and writings of the group members
Froese was fascinated by technology and skilled in using it to create music. He built custom-made instruments and, wherever he went, collected sounds with tape recorders for use in constructing musical works later. An experimental musical instrument (or custom-made instrument) is a Musical instrument that modifies or extends an existing instrument or class of instruments His early work with tape loops and other repeating sounds was the obvious precursor to the emerging technology of the sequencer, which Tangerine Dream quickly adopted upon its arrival. A music sequencer (also MIDI sequencer or just sequencer) is software or hardware designed to create and manage computer-generated music
The first Tangerine Dream album, Electronic Meditation, was a tape-collage Krautrock piece, using the technology of the time rather than the synthesized music they later became famous for, and was a collaboration between Froese, Klaus Schulze, and Conrad Schnitzler. Electronic Meditation is the debut album by the German Electronic music group Tangerine Dream. Krautrock is a generic name for the Experimental music scene that appeared in Germany in the late 1960s and gained popularity throughout the 1970s especially in Britain Conrad Schnitzler (b Düsseldorf, 1937 is a prolific German experimental Musician. Electronic Meditation was published by Ohr in 1970, and began the period known as the Pink Years (the Ohr logo was a pink ear). But starting with their second album, Alpha Centauri, the group has been a trio or occasionally duo of electronic instruments, commonly augmented by guitar from Froese (or, much later, other musicians as well), and occasionally also other instruments. Alpha Centauri (1971 is an album by the German Electronic music group Tangerine Dream. Of these, drums from Chris Franke and organ from Steve Schroyder (on Alpha Centauri) or Peter Baumann (on subsequent releases) feature prominently in the band's music during the early 70s. Chris Franke is an experimental poet from Charlotesville Virginia, USA Peter Baumann (born January 29, 1953 in Berlin) formed the core line-up of the German electronic group Tangerine Dream with Edgar They also started their particularly heavy usage of the Mellotron during this period. The Mellotron is an electro-mechanical polyphonic keyboard originally developed and built in Birmingham, England in the early 1960s
The band's 1973 album Atem was named as Album of the Year by British DJ John Peel, and this attention helped Tangerine Dream to sign to the fledgling Virgin Records in the same year. Atem is an album by the German Electronic music group Tangerine Dream. John Robert Parker Ravenscroft, OBE (30 August 1939 – 25 October 2004 known professionally as John Peel, was an English Disc jockey, radio Virgin Records is a British Record label founded by English entrepreneur Richard Branson, Simon Draper, and Nik Powell Soon afterward they released the album Phaedra, an eerie soundscape that unexpectedly reached #15 in the United Kingdom album charts and became one of Virgin's first bona-fide hits. Phaedra (1974 is an album by the German Electronic music group Tangerine Dream. The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the United Kingdom, the UK or Britain,is a Sovereign state located Phaedra was the first commercial album to feature sequencers and came to define much more than just the band's own sound. The creation of the album's title track was something of a fluke; the band was experimenting in the studio with a recently-acquired Moog synthesizer, and the tape happened to be rolling at the time. The term Moog (ˈmoʊg as in 'vogue' Synthesizer can refer to any number of Analog synthesizers designed by Dr They kept the results and later added flute, bass-guitar and Mellotron performances. The Mellotron is an electro-mechanical polyphonic keyboard originally developed and built in Birmingham, England in the early 1960s The cantankerous Moog, like many other early synthesizers, was so sensitive to changes in temperature that its oscillators would drift badly in tuning as the equipment warmed up, and this drift can easily be heard on the final recording. This album marked the beginning of the period known as the Virgin Years.
In the 1980s, along with other electronic music pioneers such as Jean Michel Jarre and Vangelis, the band were early adopters of the new digital technology which revolutionized the sound of the synthesiser. Jean-Michel André Jarre (born 24 August 1948, Lyon) is a French Composer, performer and Music producer. Evangelos Odysseas Papathanassiou (Born March 29, 1943 in Volos, Greece) ( Greek: Ευάγγελος Οδυσσέας Παπαθανασίου A digital system uses discrete (discontinuous values usually but not always Symbolized Numerically (hence called "digital" to represent information for Their technical competence and extensive experience in their early years with self-made instruments and unusual means of creating sounds meant that they were able to exploit this new technology to make music quite unlike anything heard before. To the modern listener, their albums of that period may not seem so exceptional, but only because the technology they adopted at that time is now used almost universally.
Tangerine Dream's earliest concerts were visually quite dull by modern standards, with three men sitting motionless for hours alongside massive electronic boxes festooned with patch cords and a few flashing lights. Some concerts were even performed in complete darkness. As time went on and technology advanced, the concerts become much more elaborate, with visual effects, lighting, lasers, pyrotechnics, and projected images. By 1977 their North American tour featured full-scale Laserium effects.
Through the 1970s and 1980s the band toured extensively. The concerts generally included large amounts of unreleased and/or improvised material, and were consequently widely bootlegged. A bootleg recording is an audio and/or Video recording of a performance that was not officially released by the artist or under other legal authority They were notorious for playing extremely loudly (reaching 134db in 1976) and for a long time. The band released recordings of a fair number of their concerts, and on some of these the band worked out material which would later form the backbone of their studio recordings (for example, Pergamon, which documents a concert given in East Berlin shortly after Johannes Schmoelling joined the group, contains themes that would appear later on Tangram). Tangram is a 1980 album of Electronic music by Tangerine Dream. An excellent introduction is the seminal Ricochet album; this was recorded during a tour which included European cathedrals, with some later overdubbing.
Most TD albums were purely instrumental—two albums that prominently featured lyrics, Cyclone (1978) and Tyger (1987) were met with disapproval from some fans. Cyclone is a 1978 album by Tangerine Dream, and the first in their canon to feature proper vocals and lyrics While there have occasionally been a few vocals on the band's other releases, such as the track "Kiew Mission" from 1981's Exit, the group only recently returned to featuring vocals in a musical trilogy based on Dante's The Divine Comedy and their 2007 album Madcap's Flaming Duty
After their 1980 East Berlin gig, when they became one of the first major Western bands to perform in a Communist country, Tangerine Dream became very popular behind the Iron Curtain. Exit is an Electronic music album released in 1981 by the German group Tangerine Dream. The Divine Comedy East Berlin was the name given to the eastern part of Berlin between 1949 and 1990 Communism is a Socioeconomic structure that promotes the establishment of an egalitarian, classless, stateless Society based The " Iron Curtain " was the symbolic ideological and physical boundary dividing Europe into two separate areas from the end of World War II until the end They were one of the most popular bands in Poland in the early 1980s and even released a double live album of one of their performances there called Poland. Poland - The Warsaw Concert is an album of Electronic music released by Tangerine Dream in 1984 Because of the abstract nature of the music—and, arguably, the lack of lyrics—they did not attract censorship from the authorities, unlike many other Western bands. With Poland, the band moved to the Jive Electro label, marking the beginning of the Blue Years.
Throughout the 1980s Tangerine Dream composed scores for more than twenty films. This had been an interest of Froese's since the late 1960s, when he scored an obscure Polish film. Many of the group's soundtracks were composed at least partially of reworked material from the band's studio albums or work that was in progress for upcoming albums; see, for example, the resemblance between the track "Igneous" on their soundtrack for Thief and the track "Thru Metamorphic Rocks" on their studio release Force Majeure. Thief (1981 is a soundtrack album by the German band Tangerine Dream for the film Thief, directed by Michael Mann. Force Majeure ( French for "superior force" is a common clause in Contracts which essentially frees both parties from Liability Their first exposure on U. S. television came when a track for the then in-progress album Le Parc was used as the theme for the television program Street Hawk. Street Hawk was an American Television series that aired for 13 episodes on ABC in 1985. Some of the more famous soundtracks have been Sorcerer, The Keep, Risky Business, and Legend. Sorcerer (1977 is a soundtrack album by the German band Tangerine Dream for the film Sorcerer. The Keep (1997 is the Soundtrack to the movie The Keep (1983 by the German Electronic music group Tangerine Risky Business is a soundtrack album by the German band Tangerine Dream for the film Risky Business, starring Tom Cruise. Legend is a soundtrack album released in 1986 by the German band Tangerine Dream for the North American theatrical version of the film Legend At their best, the soundtracks have been as musically successful as the regular studio albums, and many fans discovered them through their film or television work.
The group has had recording contracts with Ohr, Virgin, Jive Electro, Private Music, and Miramar, and many of the minor soundtracks were released on Varese Saraband. In 1996, the band founded their own record label, TDI and more recently Eastgate. Subsequent albums are today generally not available in normal retail channels but are sold by mail-order. The same applies to their Miramar releases, the rights to which the band has bought back. Meanwhile, their Ohr and Jive Electro catalogs (known as the "Pink" and "Blue" Years) are currently owned by Sanctuary Records. Sanctuary Records is a Record label based in the United Kingdom and a subsidiary of Universal Music Group.
Edgar Froese also released a number of solo recordings which are similar in style to Tangerine Dream's work. Jerome Froese released a number of singles as TDJ Rome, that are similar to his work within the Dream Mixes series; in 2006 he released his first solo album Neptunes. Jerome is presently on hiatus from Tangerine Dream to concentrate on his solo career. He has recently finished his second solo album Shiver Me Timbers which was released on October 29, 2007.

Tangerine Dream began as a surreal rock band, each of the members contributed different things. Edgar Froese's guitar style was inspired by Jimi Hendrix , while Chris Franke contributed the more avant garde elements of Stockhausen and Terry Riley. James Marshall Hendrix (born Johnny Allen Hendrix) (November 27 1942 – September 18 1970 was an American Guitarist, Singer and Songwriter Avant-garde (avɑ̃gaʁd in French) means "advance guard" or "vanguard Terry Riley (born June 24 1935) is an American composer associated with the minimalist school Yes-like influence was brought in by Steve Joliffe on Cyclone.

Classical music has had some influence on the sound of Tangerine Dream over the years. Ligeti and Stockhausen are clearly visible as dominant influences in the early albums. A Baroque sensibility sometimes informs the more coordinated sequencer patterns, which has its most direct expression in the La Follia section that comes at the very end of the title track of Force Majeure. La Folía is one of the oldest remembered European musical themes on record In live performances, the piano solos often directly quoted from Romantic classical works for piano, such as the Beethoven and Mozart snippets in much of the late '70s - early '80s stage shows. In the bootleg recording of the Mannheim Mozartsaal concert of 1976 (Tangerine Tree volume 13), the first part of the first piece also clearly quotes from Liszt's Totentanz. Mannheim is a City in Germany. With 327318 inhabitants it is the second-largest city in the state of Baden-Württemberg after the capital Stuttgart Tangerine Tree was a project from 2002 through 2006 that was dedicated to the collection preservation and distribution of unreleased concerts and other audio material by the band Dance of Death, also variously called Danse Macabre (French Danza Macabra (Italian or Totentanz The first phrase is played on a harpsichord synthesizer patch, and is answered by the second half of the phrase in a flute voicing on a Mellotron.

An infrequently recurring non-musical influence on Tangerine Dream, and Edgar Froese in particular, have been 12th-19th century poets. A poet is a person who writes Poetry. Etymology From the Ancient greek: ποιέω, poieō: "I make or compose" This was first evident on the 1981 album Exit, the track title "Pilots of the Purple Twilight" being a quote from Alfred Lord Tennyson's poem Locksley Hall. Alfred Tennyson 1st Baron Tennyson (6 August 1809 – 6 October 1892 was Poet Laureate of the United Kingdom and remains one of the most popular English poets Tennyson's son Hallam recalled that his father said the poem was inspired by Sir William Jones ' prose translation of the Arabic Mu'allaqat. Six years later, the album Tyger featured poems from William Blake set to music; and around the turn of the millennium, Edgar Froese started working on a musical trilogy based on Dante Alighieri's The Divine Comedy, completed in 2006. Tyger is an album by Tangerine Dream based on the poetry of William Blake. William Blake (28 November 1757 – 12 August 1827 was an English poet, painter, and Printmaker. The Divine Comedy Most recently, the 2007 album Madcap's Flaming Duty features more poems set to music, some again from Blake but also eg. Walt Whitman. Walter Whitman (May 31 1819 &ndash March 26 1892 was an American poet, Essayist journalist, and humanist.
Pink Floyd were also an influence on Edgar Froese and Tangerine Dream. Pink Floyd are Madcap's Flaming Duty is dedicated to the memory of the late Syd Barrett. Syd Barrett (born Roger Keith Barrett; 6 January 1946 - 7 July 2006 was an English singer songwriter guitarist and artist The title refers to Barrett's solo release, "The Madcap Laughs". The Madcap Laughs was Syd Barrett 's first solo album after being replaced in Pink Floyd by his old school friend David Gilmour.
The band's influence can be felt in ambient artists such as Deepspace, Future Sound of London, and Global Communication, as well as Rock, pop, and dance artists such as Radiohead, M83, DJ Shadow, Ulrich Schnauss, Cut Copy and Kasabian. The Future Sound of London (often abbreviated to FSOL) are a prolific British Electronic music band comprised of Garry Cobain and Brian Global Communication is an Electronic music act comprised of Tom Middleton and Mark Pritchard.
